Roughy Toys Alex the Monkey Review+Giveaway!

Check out my video for our full review and details about Alex the Monkey!

Alex is very special and much more than just another toy. When you purchase an Alex the Monkey, you receive one & another one is given to a child in need. Toy donations are made worldwide to Children’s Hospitals, Ronald McDonald Houses, Homeless Shelters, and Orphanages. The perfect gift! 


Roughy Toys was founded by husband and wife team, Rich & Grace Twilley after an inspiring visit to Brazil. While Rich was finishing his masters, he visited the favelas (slums) of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil and witnessed children in extreme poverty – children with no toys.

When he got home, he was playing with his two year old son Mark and realized that he didn’t need just another toy, he needed a more meaningful toy and Alex was born.

Visit their website here to purchase your very own Alex and help a child in need get a brand new toy while doing so! 🙂


The building blocks of learning start very early and begin with play. Playing with toys stimulates cognitive development and leads to greater success in education and in life. Creativity, imagination, fine motor skills, friendship, and much more all come from playing with toys.
